We believe every child deserves to have access to exceptional education. And we believe putting education at the very heart of communities is the way to achieve that.

What is an EduCommunity?

It’s an innovative approach to putting exceptional education at the very heart of a community. It transforms neighborhoods, improves opportunities for kids, and strengthens families, neighborhoods, and entire communities.

Who’s behind this big idea?

We are a private foundation grounded in the principles of smart community development. We’ve learned firsthand that education is not only a catalyst to great communities but communities can be a catalyst for great education.


For every 600 single family homes, a 400-student elementary school is needed.

“They understand that ‘Build Community’ is not just about constructing a nice house but a community with great schools that make it worth living in that house.”
– Van Schoales , Chief Executive Officer, A Plus Colorado
